Summary

Providing insight into the problems encountered by the media in developing countries, this paper addresses the history and evolution of the press in Guatemala, focusing in particular on conditions faced by journalists today under the democratically elected civilian government of the Christian Democractic party after some 20 years of military rule. The paper is based on 41 interviews with journalists in Guatemala from August 20 to September 16, 1988, and on a daily reading of the newspapers during that period as well as publications of the Guatemalan Journalists Association. The paper is in eight sections, as follows: (1) The Setting; (2) The Closure of Newspapers; (3) The Politicization of The Newspapers; (4) Newspaper Coverage and Staffing; (5) Radio and Television Journalism; (6) "Fafa" (a practice of accepting cash from sources for writing, distorting, or seeing that a news story or column is published or not published); (7) Legal Ramifications: The Carrera Case; and (8) Discussion and Conclusions. One hundred twenty-three endnotes are included. (SR)
